Floods being the most recurrent phenomena are potent hazard to become a disaster posing myriad challenges to disaster management system of the Country. The risks of flood hazards, therefore, merit adoption of a comprehensive and pro-active strategy at all tiers of response for dealing effectively with all associated challenges.
New approach puts theory of Climate-Resilient Water Management into practice on the ground
Climate-driven water scarcity could reduce GDP growth rates in South Asia by as much as 6%.1
Climate change will increase water-stress through irregular rainfall patterns and increased incidence of floods and droughts.
The Action on Climate Today (ACT) programme has developed a conceptual framework that clearly distinguishes Climate Resilient Water Management (CRWM) from traditional approaches to water management.
